Just as advertised and other reviews say. So glad I found it. Roger and Mike are good people and know how to make someone feel at home from the thoughtfulness of the details in the cottage to interesting conversations. The fresh and quality coffee and cream and wine were specially nice touches as well as miscellaneous products one may have forgotten. Everything is neatly arranged by someone who cares. And the place is immaculate from corner to corner. Gulfport is such a nice choice compared to the very crowded places, like Clearwater. The quaint streets and vegetation are gorgeous. I arrived all stressed out and left calm and rested. Not far from either Tampa or St Petersburg airports. Great choice !

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding/honeymoon. We felt welcome from the moment we arrived! Roger made sure to turn on the air conditioning before we arrived as it was quite warm and muggy that day. There was a bottle of wine and gourmet cookies waiting for us! They supplied everything we could possibly need. There was a new bag of coffee, shampoo/conditioner and soap in the shower, a drawer with new razors toothbrushes and toothpaste. Roger and Michael were right there if we needed anything but took care not to impose on us. Our first night there they welcomed us onto their beautiful screened in porch to talk and let us know more about the area including their favorite spots to eat. One day we left early in the day for the beach and didn't turn n the porch light in case we got back after dark. Well we did arrive home after dark AND it was raining. Roger and Michael put a lantern out on the walkway so that we could see our way to the front door! Gulfport was a quaint friendly town- the kind you don't see too often anymore. O'Maddys is the place to be any night of the week. We will definitely be back to Gulfport and to the Blue Arbor Guest Cottage!!

“A Monet Version of Peace and Solitude”
Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This cottage has the aura of a quiet place all your own, where there is nothing intrusive. It is the perfect place for someone seeking to be released from every day pressures and wanting to have a moment inside tranquility while having charm and beautiful ambiance of a truly quaint small town awaiting you whenever you want it. The cottage is more like a studio where you can live at your own time and speed. And the small 2-seater porch is enveloping in bringing you into a topical moment where butterflies abound, geckos play and squirrels do what they can to entertain you. It is a moment of silence surrounded by life with a Monet Blue Cottage. Thank you Roger and Michael for sharing.

My husband and I spent 3 lovely days in Gulfport and we couldn't have found a better place to stay. The cottage is wonderfully furnished, VERY clean and cozy and it is located in a fabulous tropical garden. The owners are two of the nicest people we have ever met and they made us feel right at home. A bottle of very nice white wine with two stem glasses, a box of delicious biscotti, a new pack of coffee and several bottles of water were waiting for us in our room. The apartment had pretty much everything we needed: coffee maker, oven toaster, plates, cups, silverware and internet access. The location is also very convenient: a 5 minutes walk to the lovely downtown and beach.
We had some trouble booking the cottage, b/c we did it kind of last minute, but this was totally Tripadvisor's fault. When we told the owners we could not book the place they immediately contacted Tripadvisor, solved the problem and they had the cottage ready for us in no time. They are truly wonderful!
We highly recommend the Blue Arbor Guest Cottage and we will definitely go back!

Roger and Michael were great hosts having coffee, wine, and delicious bisottis in the room when we arrived. It is very clean and in a quiet area but within walking distance of all the restaurants and shops in the nice little downtown Gulfport. The cottage is roomy and has most everything needed except there is no stove top but a toaster oven, microwave, fridge and dishes provided worked well for our week stay.
